What is a MED file?

A MED file is an audio file created by MED or OctaMED, which were sound trackers for the Commodore Amiga. It contains notes, pitches, and effects used to create music tracks and sound sequences.

More Information

In 1991, developer Teijo Kinnunen and publisher RBF Software released OctaMED, a follow-up to the popular MED sound tracker. While MED used only MED files to store sounds, OctaMED used both MED and .8MED files to do the same.

OctaMED was notable for being able to play eight-channel audio on the Commodore Amiga's four-channel sound chip. While OctaMED was ported to Windows in the late 1990s (under the name MED Soundstudio), it is no longer developed or maintained.
